Photobucket

That is really funny. Facially it looks like a cross between Jerry and Grisman. The body looks like a cross between Jerry and Brian Urlacher, if the only Jerry in the mix is the black T.

Trivia: BUr's hometown?







Clue: think thread with Tell/Rob discussing proximity of prisons to towns mentioned in song discussed in said thread...

I hope this doesn't come as a major disappointment to you, but I don't read every thread here and i can't say i recall every discussion that you and Robert have had.

I thought he was from New Mexico, which is close El Paso which is a song that was even played in the curmudgeon era so that is a possibility.

Huge! Huge shock...dismay...heartbreaking really.

Ah well.

You're on the right track, weedhopper: NM it is. Tucumcari (thought you might have been in on that thread about "Willin'" that Rob likes so much; the towns ref'd in it? Only makes sense if you know the tune. I love Linda R's version).

Anyhow, I only think of it everytime I hear about BUr cause it's the only podunk town in the middle of nowhere that you see billboards (in my exp anyhooo) with his pic saying "he's OUR boy!" or some such...I've been thru a time or two (NE NM on rte 40--historic rte 66) while chasing lizards...otherwise, I'd never have known (though subsequently I think I've heard them mention it on the tube while watching Bears' games...?).

El Paso was a good guess given the context.

Love the song and if the thread discusses that it was that song that got Lowell George kicked out of the Mothers, then i might have a faint recollection of it.

I've had that picture on my refrigerator for 15 years. I wonder if my daughter knows she's been published?
